Aunt Mary - I, too, remember the summer trips to Texas (HOT!), the afternoon naps, swimming, the lake, trips to Moulton ... and on and on. You made those vacations memorable for all of us. I especially remember the complete set of (baseball) catcher's equipment you gave me, from your playing days, when I was about 9 years old. I had that stuff for a long, long time. My thoughts and prayers are with you as with all the family. May God bless you in every way.

My sympathy goes out to the family of Mary. She will be missed. I remember the many vacations we spent with the family, they made us feel right at home. Always managed to keep the children happy, taking us to the park and visiting other relatives. Our annual trip to Moulton and Shiner to visit Aunt Mary Pavlicek for dinner. God Bless you, Mary.

Aunt Mary, we will miss you dearly. All those summer vacations, were cherished memories. You would make us take naps, after we ate lunch so we would not get stomach cramps. When all we wanted to do was go swimming. Everyone sitting around talking to G'ma Steinocher in Czech, and you taught me how to say "Hello" and "Good-bye" to her. That was all I could communicate. So, Aunt Mary "Na shledanou" and God rest your sole! We love you. Lisa Becker

Mary was a great person to work with. She was in the same Unit that I was at IRS in the early 70s. I remember her well.

Aunt Mary - I will always have great memories of visiting on our summer vacations. Also of the time that you stayed with me because I was too scared to go up in the Tower Of The Americas at HemisFair '68.
